I joined the site a few weeks ago but was waiting for my first ukulele to arrive before posting my intro thread. I live in western MA (Franklin County area near Greenfield).
I got an uke mostly on a whim. It was a good price and I always did like the sound of them. I figured that once I'm able to do something with it, I'll bring it by my dad's house. He plays around with guitar and has since I was little. So I thought we could play together, or at least have something to talk about. Maybe I'll get him interested and he'll buy one himself. He's retired now and has been complaining about being bored.
I have been watching lots of videos and have bookmarked lots of sites while waiting for my first uke to arrive. It arrived on Monday. Yesterday we had a big snow storm so I had the day off from work. I played around with my uke for most of the afternoon. I'm finally getting the hang of strumming. Now I'll move onto the next steps. I'm having fun so far!
